I've been fighting a cold all week, but finally had to admit defeat this morning, and call in sick to my sister. I have a feeling she doesn't mind getting to play with her baby all day. I rarely get sick, so when I do I go rather overboard with grumpiness, because I'm not used to the mucus, aches, and exhaustion.
But, moving on from the whining...
I think today I'll curl up on the sofa with a commission I just started (a polar bear in a red cardi), several cups of tea, and watch Mary Poppins. I can't remember what the video service is called in the US, but up here it's zip.ca. Since we don't have cable (in fact, we don't even have a TV, just a large computer screen) this is how we get our entertainment. I love being able to choose what we should watch from such a huge list, and it's always a surprise what we get next.
Our list is pretty evenly split between movies and TV shows, so we have both evening and weekend viewing. We have pretty similar taste in movies, but my hubbie draws the line at musicals and Shakespeare, so I get to watch those on my own time. As for TV shows, we've already made our way through the original Star Trek series and the animated series. Now we are now on season 2 of TNG (can you tell we're geeks?). I think TNG is my favourite, though, since I remember watching it as a kid/teen with my dad. We almost never missed an episode :)

I hope you feel better soon. I had a nasty cold a few weeks ago and luckily didn't pass it on to my daughter. I even lost my voice which doesn't happend too often much to my husband's disappoinment...
Get well soon!
That looks similar to Netflix. We use it a lot too since we don't do cable and can only pick up a few PBS stations with our rabbit ears. I will have to make my way through TNG. I too watched it with my family when it was on. Good memories.
My husband and i LOVE Netflix and got subscriptions for my brother and parents. They love it too! I hope you are feeling better real soon. Take good care of yourself....
That reminds me of when me and my dad used to watch Star Trek! I was really young, so I don't remember much about the actual episodes, but I remember asking about Geordi's visor! Anyway, I hope you feel better soon!
